It will not be long until winter is upon us now that the National Ploughing Champ-ionships is behind us. Farmers are therefore moving their attentions away from securing fodder supplies and getting grass growth back to focusing on the housing of their cattle.

October is the perfect month to service and replace equipment around the farm that hasn’t been used for a period of time. Many farmers are currently upgrading and investing in a new shear grab to help save them both time and money for the year ahead.

Drumlish Farm Machinery in County Tyrone is Northern Ireland’s approved dealer for SlurryKat and offers farmers the full range of SlurryKat’s popular ‘ProFarm’ and ‘ProCut’ shear grabs, which come in a range of sizes.

SlurryKat has been a growing player in the shear grab market over recent years with its original shear grab offering a host of unique design advantages over its competitors, including “the widest-opening grab” on the market.

Shear grabs manufactured by SlurryKat have become regarded as some of the strongest and most robust on the market. The line up will suit all types of farms ranging in capacity size from 1.0 metre to 2.95 metres.

They are not only strongly built but designed to cut cleanly, resulting in minimum disturbance to the silage face and ensuring maximum life expectancy of the silage block by reducing secondary fermentation.

To strengthen SlurryKat’s offering it has launched a range of upgraded shear-grabs for intensive users, such as large dairy units. These new flagship ‘ProCut’ shear grabs are fitted with special Hardox tines and designed to be “maintenance-free” with unparalleled long-life wear characteristics.

Similar to SlurryKat, Drumlish Farm Machinery also operates an agricultural contracting business and a working farm, which ensures it provides first hand advice backed up by its onsite service department.

Sales Manager Gerard Barrett at Drumlish Farm Machinery explains: “As farmers ourselves we understand the challenges faced by other farmers when it comes to feeding cattle as efficiently as possible. We proudly use the SlurryKat shear grab range on our own farm and can vouch first hand that it is best in class.”
